Magic and the Reconstruction of Reality

Urban Bee Legends - UC Berkeley Urban Bee Lab
The genitals of honey bees blow out explosively in mating with a sound that can be heard, paralyzing and killing them. In the name of efficiency, bees prefer to travel no more than 50-500m between flowers and nesting places.

Crises of imagination and of action are often traced back to all sorts of economic, political and cultural reasons. However, it is often the case that the roots of such crises stretch much deeper than that, down to a crisis of our understanding and perception of reality itself - and of our presence within it. When such radical nihilism emerges - paralyzing all possible action and imagination, while relegating any of them, it is not possible for the anthropologist to do so. attempt at struggling for emancipation to the realm of psychopathological phantasies - a reconstruction of reality itself becomes necessary before anything else returns to be possible. Those of Martino claims, this is the work and the aim of magic. In this talk, I will claim that this is also the aim and work of philosophy, and the first step for the reconstruction of emancipatory politics in the present age.
